Talking with Lefteris Statharas of Lefteris Asks Science

In episode 11 of Podcaster Stories, I sit down with Lefteris Statharas of the Lefteris Asks Science podcast.

Driven by both his passion for science, and his professional work as a mechanical engineer, Lefteris started his podcast as a way to bring scientists together to demystify their professions, and show how fun science can be.

With a natural curiosity and an easy-going manner, Lefteris has a simple goal – to see what drives people with passion, and to get more people interested in, and passionate about, science.

Topics up for discussion this week include:

  • how the idea for the podcast came about after a chat with a peer
  • which type of science drives his curiosity
  • the episodes that have stood out
  • why there seems to be such an anti-science stance in some countries, with the US probably being the worst culprit, as evidenced by Covid-19
  • how social media has enabled more interest in science
  • the cultural and scientific differences between Greece, where Lefteris originates from, and Singapore, where he currently lives and works
  • who his all time hero is, and why

Settle back for an engaging conversation around science, the rabbit holes of Reddit and the internet, and more.
